Spring Floral Die Cut Inlay Card

I wanted to make a springy card, so used a background size die and pulled the “guts” out of it and colored them with Prismacolor and Caran ‘dache watercolor pencils then liquefied them. The Prismacolors were light peach, blush pink, carmine red, and pink. The Caran ‘dache were Granite Rose, Raspberry Red, and Rose Pink.  The colors did not come out very dark the first time, so I waited for them to dry, and repainted them to get a more vibrant color, by using a combination of the same colors.
I used white Recollections 110 lb card stock for my card base and cut it the 5 1/2″ tall by 4 1/4″ wide. I used a new Tonic wet glue to glue my background die to the card base.
I cut three different flower dies in pink, and colored them with three Touch Five markers in 7, 16 and 137.
In the strips left behind on the background die, I added tear tape in the slots, then added some wet glue in the corners of the slots with micro brushes I bought at Aliexpress to ensure the strips stayed where they were glued.
I  cut a leafy die in green card stock, and used a darker green alcohol marker to make it darker. I also colored a hello die cut with the same green marker.
I took the flowers I colored and helped make them look realistic, by laying the flowers on fun foam and using a stylus, rubbed the petals from inside near the center of the flower to leaf tip and added a light pink pearl to the center of each flower. I used Pretty in Pink ink from Stampin Up on a sentiment for the inside of the card, then a peg stamp (www.pegstamps.com) and used a jagged petal flower and a fern stamped in Always Artichoke ink from Stampin’ Up.
